Yes that is correct but this is a system generated file and the preferred
place (in SUSE) to make  changes is  /etc/modprobe.conf.local
There is also a /etc/modprobe.d directory that is referenced in

I went through a few interations of trying to make my sound and HDTV
work with these files and had no luck. That is when I put the load in
/etc/sysconfig/kernel.  Now that I have some more input I may go back to
trying this again.

My understanding though of the modprobe files was that they modified
system generated loads - e.g. speciied aliases and install scripts to
modify the install of a module but only if it were called from somewhere
else. How does one force a load in modprobe.conf?
